DT Project #3 by Minxy Featuring:

Christmas Cottage by Teresa Collins

Hiya Gang
Sorry for the delay in today's posting.. Like a muppet I lost track of my days then realised I had the dentist so couldn't post on time. {Hope you can forgive me}
But i'm here now to finish off my week with some simple gift bags/pockets.

 I used my Tim Holtz dies to cut the shapes but there are many online templates you could also use.
Do you remember the strip of paper I saved from the scrapbook layout, Well that middle strip made both the bags, I did one using each of the patterns, and because they are double sided the inside looks as pretty as the outside.

I used the CC acrylic stamps to make the tags, adding a little snowflake charm for added bling, and more CC papers for a couple of snowflakes to jazz up the pocket, and one of the CC die-cut shapes.
And that concludes my week, But don't forget that you still have some wonderful projects coming from both Astrid and Hels in the next couple of weeks.
Thanks for visiting, Don't forget to comment so I know you stopped by x
Stay Inky

Well I'll forgive you Minxy 'cos these were worth waiting for! They're smashing and you've got me wanting to have a go at them. I'm sure I have a pouch template somewhere but I think the bag die is another one for the wish list. All the best things come in little packages so I think I need some of these to distribute among the family to be returned with something nice in them, lol! Pandora goodies would fit in there nicely methinks ;D

Agree with Val, these look fabulous and were certainly worth the wait!! (I was going to do some, am glad I didn't now), but the papers just lend themselves so well for this kind of project. Love how you did the handles too!
